MY BX 16VALVE PROJECT

Post by thanuttiscotsman » Sun Dec 03, 2006 10:19 am

hi folks,
as some of you know my bx 16v is a project... a long term one i have been working on for 1 year and six months and i have spent a rediculous 4k on it and its still not mot´d. well bear in mind it was a heap of sh´t that came out my mates garden where it had sat for about 5 years. anyhow i have made shedloads of progress since i got it. well i didnt take any pics of my progress in the first 6 months i got it because i wasnt aware of the bx and bx16v clubs. anyhow here is what i have been doing in the last 6 weeks or so after buying literally a transit van full of parts from toddman on the 16v forum and he´s on this one.

so here goes, i will start with a couple pics of the parts i got.

so firstly i decided to attack the interior as mine was dirty ripped and mismatching, just basically fuc*ed.

i started by taking the old rear seats out first
